I. Overview

Congress enacted an extension of FTA's current authorization, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), through September 30, 2011 in the Surface Transportation Extension Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-5). Since that time, Congress has also enacted the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-10), hereinafter “Appropriations Act, 2011,” which sets an obligation limitation for Formula and Bus programs and funds other Federal transit programs of DOT through September 30, 2011. This Notice provides the remaining formula funds and full year appropriations for FTA discretionary programs.Start Printed Page 29292

II. FY 2011 Available Funding for FTA Programs

A. Funding Based on the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-10)

The Appropriations Act, 2011 included a total of almost $10.3 billion for FTA programs in obligation limitation of contract authority under the Mass Transit account (MTA) and new appropriations of general funds.

In addition, in FY 2010, Congress appropriated an obligation limitation for the Formula and Bus programs that was slightly lower than the FY 2010 authorized contract authority for those programs creating a $17.39 million difference in FY 2010. This additional contract authority is now available and this Notice apportions these FY 2010 funds to the Formula and Bus programs in addition to the FY 2011 full year apportionment. See Section II of FTA's Supplemental Fiscal Year 2010 Apportionments and Allocations Federal Register Notice (FR May 13, 2010 Vol. 75, No. 92) for detailed information.

New FY 2011 funding levels also reflect a $17.39 million difference between the authorized contract authority level and appropriated obligation limitation for Formula and Bus programs.

For other programs, a .2 percent across-the-board rescission for appropriated funds applies as well. The rescission was applied to the budget authority provided for fiscal year 2011 for any discretionary account and the budget authority provided in any advance appropriation for fiscal year 2011 for discretionary accounts in any prior fiscal year appropriation Act. The rescission, however, does not affect contract authority or obligation limitation for Formula and Bus programs.

B. Morgantown, West Virginia Technical Correction

In the course of preparing FTA's Fiscal Year 2010 supplemental apportionment tables, the fixed guideway direct route miles and vehicle revenue miles associated with the Morgantown, West Virginia urbanized area were inadvertently included in its Section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula program calculations. The resulting Section 5307 apportionment table published in FTA's Supplemental Fiscal Year 2010 Apportionments and Allocations Federal Register Notice (FR May 13, 2010 Vol. 75, No. 92) displayed an allotment for the Morgantown, WV urbanized area that was $751,158 in excess of what the urbanized area should have received under the Section 5307 formula. FTA corrected the Morgantown apportionment record in its grants systems to limit Morgantown's allocation to what should have been received in FY 2010. With the publication of this notice, FTA apportions the $751,158 to those urbanized areas eligible to receive funds under the Fixed Guideway Tier of the Section 5307 program, in proportion to the formula factors of the Fixed Guideway Tier.

C. FY 2011 Discretionary Program Funds

The Appropriations Act, 2011 did not include any project specific Congressional designations. Accordingly, FTA has $2.73 billion in discretionary funds available for allocation. It is FTA's intent to publish Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) for most discretionary programs no later than early Fall 2011. The Major Capital Investment program, commonly referred to as the New Starts and Small Starts programs, will be excluded because the program has an ongoing project development and review process, and funding will be allocated consistent with information already available to FTA. Additionally, FTA plans to consolidate multiple programs into single discretionary solicitations of proposals that further specific Department of Transportation Strategic Goals, consistent with the approach used for FY 2010 funds.
